We stayed at The Mayfair Hotel over the weekend. I didn't pay a huge amount for 2 Double Rooms so I wasn't expecting it to be the Ritz but I did expect a lot better than we got. On arrival the place was deserted, I mean there was nobody anywhere. I followed the signs for the Reception through a dark... More

The location is perfect for Shanklin beach and Esplanade. It has large car park which will save you a fortune if you just walk down to the sea as the parking is quite expensive along the front. The lady who runs the hotel is lovely and so is her helper. I booked at short notice but she was able to... More

After travelling 2 weeks in France and Britain with nothing but spectacular stays, we were captivated by the scenic views advertised by the Mayfair hotel in Shanklin. Unfortunately, the disappointments did not stop after we turned the corner and sighted the exterior of the building. The downward spiral included unfinished floors, a small room with an incredible view of the... More

Travelled solo and stayed for one night and wont be returning. The bed constantly creaked so couldn't sleep. The Bathroom was not properly cleaned and was cramped andrest of the hotel could also be cleaned/redecorated. Only good thing was the view.

If you're looking for compensation, just take a tumble on the filthy unswept steps into the hotel or on the broken and unlit steps from the upper to lower car park. All internal fire doors (marked 'keep shut') were held permanently open with bungees (see photo,) dangerous wiring on ceiling light in corridor outside room 12 (see photo,) toilet seat... More

In our 4 days here the carpets have not been vacuumed, neither in the public areas or the rooms. Window sills are covered in dust and grime Light fittings hang off the ceiling and most of the bulbs in the dim halls do not work. Cobwebs are everywhere and they obviously do not get cleared. The building maintenance is terrible.... More

The one star was for the clean bed linen. The bad.... The hotel was not clean. The internal fire doors were never closed. Our room smelled musty and damp- we bought a smelly candle to make it better. The beds were awful, so soft and dipped in the middle. The breakfast was mostly self service and my husband ordered his... More

Everything in this hotel from the thin towels, to the fittings falling off the wall to the powdered orange juice was down to a price rather than up to a standard. I bought on price and expected something really nice for £80 B and B. The place badly needs refurbishment - the staff were amateurish and/or didn't speak English. I... More
